I know tweens are at the age where they become uncomfortable discussing love! So Valentine’s Day can be a tricky holiday to celebrate.  However, with the ideas below you can make it fun while building family memories and traditions.

Gift of Time

The best way to show your kids how much you love and care about them is to spend quality time with them so the gift of time can be the best present.  The past several years we have given them coupons for special time with us.  A few examples are movie night, game night, date nights alone with each parent.  

Let’s Talk About Love
